i tell you what, people. you get married and all of a sudden you have to cook. i've survived on tuna in cans and spinach and gourmet bake-from-a-box, on special occasions, for the last 10 years but now i have this new "hobby".
i visit the grocery store about 5 times a week because i am always out of something. and when i go to get the "staples" there are all these sales on all these goodies that there is never enough space to get everything home. yeah, try to carry 5 full plastic bags of food home. aha, i thought so.
but don't be smirking there, i did the crockpot dinner and it was good if you discount the meat that needed knife to be hammered in to cut it but i blame it on a bad chunk of meat. and i did mashed potatoes and fish WITH GRAVY!!!! and it was made from a scratch - i added the milk and hot water and that, my friend, counts for something!!!! and i did a pizza, which was seriosly good and who cares that the crust was already done! and today i have found a recipy with magic words that satisfy both me and my husband: easy meatballs in mushroom sauce. well, i might not have things like onions and cooking oats but who cares - they are not NECESSARY. are they?
